A total of 37 large heat exchangers were ordered for a petrochemical project in Eastern Europe.
Stockholm, Sweden-based Tranter will supply four jumbo-sized shell-and-plate heat exchangers that will be used in close temperature approach heat recovery services. Each unit holds around 1,100 plates, which corresponds to 1,060 m2 of heat transfer surface. In addition, Tranter’s scope of supply includes five shell-and-plate heat exchangers handling heat transfer between flammable liquids; four welded plate heat exchangers for high fouling and high temperature services; and 24 large- and medium-sized gasketed plate heat exchangers for low temperature, non-flammable services.
According to Tranter, the plant will produce important chemical raw materials for other plants that produce plastics, fibers, detergents and other downstream chemicals.
